Good evening Quinny. Sorry that you thought this was pointed to you. That's not the case. The part that includes you is this "I have comfort with some that are "newer" than myself."<quoted text>
I'm missing something DW.
Are you suggesting someone cut & pasted comments from this thread creating a new one? To what end?
"Invite to this miscreant?" I don't understand that either. To whom was it directed? Me?
I've been posting with Denny & FC for over a year on/off Topix. They know my real name. I've talked to Fisherman on other threads. I thought I've spoken with you by a different name. Whether I choose to meet folks I haven't bantered with for an appropriate amount of time --- however that is to be defined ---- is my business.
....."albeit in my own state..." The only reason we are gathering in YOUR state is because IN happens is midway between IL (my location) and OH (Boomer/Brighteyes location) and Ft Wayne has an airport since FC is flying in.
Do what makes you comfortable. And if you were taken aback by the invite, or by my or someone else's enthusiasm, well I guess that's on you.
Granted this is cyberspace but I think by now from comments and personal positions you can get and idea of who's sincere and what kind of folks we are.
To each their own.
I did include my concern that a trouble-maker (that's who I meant about miscreant) was invited just a few posts later after messing with me that one evening early this month.
Maybe last night after your posts about M69, you wouldn't be excited about it if within a few posts I had invited him to the "all welcome" meet-up.
Yes indeed, Indiana is the "half-way" point, and I helped with some alternative considerations within the state. I don't "own" it and certainly can't have any problem about it. Why would I?
Hope you had a good Friday at work and enjoy the evening and weekend.
